deepest condolences man. There are words and songs and some are cliches and some are not we all have our own ways of coping and dealing with loss. you will find your own path. And i know its a bit unusual but i found the sentiment of Frank Turners Long Live the Queen comforting:

"...Well i was working on some words when sarah called me up
she said that lex had gone to sleep and wasn't waking up
well even though i knew that there was nothing to be done
i felt bad for not being there and now well she was gone
so i tried to think what Lex would want me to do
at times like this when i was feeling blue
so, gathered up some friends and spread the sad,sad news
and we headed to the city for a drink or too
and we sang:

we live to dance another day
its just now we have to dance for one more of us
so stop looking so damn depressed
sing with all our hearts

You'll dance again, in time. Pace be with you and your loved ones at this time. dil

I'm very sorry for your loss Liam, I'm old and have been thru some deep funks over life & death myself.

It's my belief, she's right beside you now.

But numbness overwhelms, keep with the struggle of living please, death is the biggest deception, imo.

You WILL be with her, both alive and in person again, sooner or later. Try and strive to make it later, the deception is a war, do not give in, fight and live, death surrounds but love also,
(just F'n words, i know) Sorry if I come across as crass, I just don't believe death is a final-GONE!

When you leave this dream, you will all be together again.
forge thru this valley, when you can't walk, crawl.
To me, love is all about overcoming illusions.
I'm no hit at funerals, with my odd views, but keep up the fight, I wish you well, and so do all that love you, here and there. God bless you
